I haven't submitted my amcas b/c one question: I took a stats class through the econ. dept. at my school... should I list this as a Math class.....has anyone had any trouble doing something like this?
O.K. they say that on the application but I called and the rep told me differently. Stats courses given through social science departments are not sometimes comparable to stats courses given in the math department. Stats in soc science courses are less math-, formula-, and computation-based because usually the course is dedicated to stats in the context of research design. You spend half the course learning about eco for example and how to design research experiments and the other half analyzing these experiments with statistics. This is the reason the social sciences offer their own stats courses when it would be simpler to have all their students take stats in the math departments. I took my stats course through the psyc deparment and I had this same question.Originally posted by Dr/\/\om
It counts as a math class. AMCAS and AACOMAS classify the courses by their content, not the department they were offered through.
